    What's a Tablet PC?

    Tablet PCs are compact, ultra-portable entertainment devices that let you read email, surf the Internet, read eBooks, view photos, play games, listen to music and watch video files. Most tablets are based on a smaller operating system, which allows you to purchase and download additional applications from supported stores. Tablet PCs do not have a CD/DVD drive and will not run Microsoft Windows or its applications. Tablet PCs function as a secondary device for casual entertainment purposes, and are not meant to replace a computer. They are ideal for use around the home and on the go with WiFi or 3-4G mobile broadband connections (pay as you go, contract may be required for service).

    The Vizio tablet surprised me. The look and feel belied its $300 price tag. The weight of it feels good in my hands, it just feels well put together. The finish is very high quality. As soon as I connected to my home network, a major update was automatically downloaded and installed, which tells me Vizio is continually improving and refining the device. I have no information on what the update addressed but it was a big download. The overall performance is excellent. Web pages load quickly, it locked on to my wi fi network right away, it has full market access, apps open and close quickly, the sound quality is very good, the display is very good, the form factor is dead on, in short, it performs and does everything a user would expect. I do have a few concerns however. It runs the android 2.3 gingerbread OS but it can't run live wall papers, you can't change the wallpaper for your homescreens and during heavy web browsing, the back of the tablet will get a little hot, I suspect it's the wifi radio. The Vizio user interface is boring and rigid. I did install Launcherpro, an aftermarket homescreen replacement app, but I still can't change to my own wallpaper.Not showstoppers by any means, but I do like to customize my devices. If those small issues can be addressed, this may be a keeper. Right now I'm on the fence about returning it. I also have a Xoom table which I use heavily for school and work so I am not necessarily a first timer to using a tablet. In conclusion, if you are a user who will take the unit and run with it, then by all means, this is an excellent buy. If you are a user who likes to tinker around under the hood, this may not be the device for you. This is also a huge win when you compare to the sub $200 junk tablets that are currently flooding the market.

    Great little tablet. I've had it a couple of days so this is an early review. Seems to work very well, a few of the apps I'd like are not compatible thru the Android store. It will not allow the Vizio to be selected for downloading, otherwize works great and automatically downloads the app. Typical Vizio startup, kinda slow. Biggest concern is the flimsey power connector (micro-usb). If you plan on hard use of this item, particulary while charging, get the extended warrenty or insurance, cause I think this will break first!!

    The universal remote works great and I think this tablet is worth the price just for that! So much better than my harmony remote because it only shows the buttons i need! I love the interface, sound is great and the size works well for typing with thumbs. downloaded Sygic free GPS from android market and its a full functioning GPS now too. After a week all i can say is I LOVE IT!

    • A. The market is not locked down, however there are some applications that are not functional on the tablet since many of them were created for smartphones or different Operating Systems. You are correct that Facebook for Android is not compatible technically or User Experience wise with the Android tablets. Until a functional app is released for Facebook on the Tablet, I would recommend utilizing www.facebook.com within the tablet's browser. If you need any additional assistance or are interested in any additional products feel free to contact VIZIO at 877-878-4946 or chat with us at chat.vizio.com.
